Geeking Out



I've said it before in previous posts, but Heroscape has become my new official hobby. I like the game so much. It's not just a fun game to play with the family and friends, but a creative outlet away from the stressful semester responsibilities.

This weekend, to quote a friend, I completely crossed the line into nerd-dom. I went online to HSCodex.com and found some sweet instructions on how to build your own custom bridge. The creator's original design was a samurai bridge, which looked amazing. My craft skills aren't up to par, so I just went with the basics. Still, I thought it turned out pretty well, and I can't wait to use it.

My next project will have to be either homemade trees, derelict buildings, or some other line-of-sight blocker.

Enjoy the pics!

Yup, I was right. Nerd-dom. Just in time for spring break, too.

Poor Celeste. At least your kids will think you're cool. At least until they get to middle school or high school and realize what a nerd you are because you play all of the games that the nerds at their schools play.

Brad- I love your dry brushing technique

No one leaving a positive comment? Brad the bridge is awesome. It does so much to change the stratagy of the game. Nothing like a big guy straddling the middle and taking it to the next level. We'll email you a pick we have of 3 knights doing their charge attack across my neighbors bridge. Keep it up.

So, who's the bigger geek--you for having that bridge thingy or me for not knowing what the HECK you're talking about?!

Brad, I am very intrigued by this hero thingy....perhaps you could bring an extra suitcase filled with all the stuff when you come to Malibu!

You are a man obsessed! But I can't wait to see the derelict buildings....let women do their crafts in RS....men have heroscape bridges to build!

Way cool bridge, I can't wait to see what incredible creative maze you design to thwart the power of the Hulk or Superman. (Insert evil laugh)
